Tomorrow, John Paul and I are starting the Whole30 diet created by Melissa Hartwig … she is pretty cool. We set up a whats app to remain in constant communication with our third group mate, Amy (John Paul’s sister and my soon to be sister in law) on our daily meals. We are supposed to report everything we ate via social media, but decided food reporting through facebook is a bit to aggressive for this crew.
Whole 30 … Basically meat, seafood, eggs, tons of vegetables, some fruit, and plenty of good fats ie: oils, nuts and seeds. No sugar except in fruit, no alcohol, no soda, no honey and no grains for thirty days.
We started our day with before shots to measure progress followed by a trip to the store. …. We were there for ten minutes (maybe it was 20, but it was still a very short excursion …. it is counting the time we spent waiting in like at check out) and spent $153 in Acme for two days of food meals …. that seems high, but it’s ok as we will use some items for more than two meals such as small tupperwears for our homemade salad dressing and the two big bags of nuts I got for our protein salads! John Paul and I stocked up on the following: 4 avocados, 4 bananas, 2 apples, pre wrapped chicken, lean red meat, mustard powder, parsley, thyme, paprika, spaghetti squash, almond slivers, cashews, 2 cartons of eggs, tomatoes, celery, diced canned tomato and 1 bag of grapes … tonight, I will prep us for tomorrow:
Breakfast: Fratata, avocado and 1 banana
Lunch: Protein salad with chicken and homemade basic mayo dressing (I am pretty nervous about this part) and one apple.
Dinner: Browned red meat, tomato sauce and spaghetti squash..
I’m not going to lie, I am very excited about this.
Last day of junk eating consisted of scrapple, eggs and toast for breakfast and rib-eye roni sandwich from fresnos for dinner … I had chocolate color pretzels, peppermint patty and a peanut butter smidgen as well 🙂
You will see. I also made the video above in fear I would be unable to finish my blog post, but I was wrong.
